Spay & Neuter

Ensure their health and happiness

As the owner of a dog or cat, you are committed to providing them with the veterinary care they need in order to live a long, healthy life.

In addition to having them vaccinated and bringing them in for routine wellness exams, having them spayed or neutered is one of the best things you can do to ensure their long-term health and happiness. At Destination Pet, we offer spaying and neutering in Woodstock and the surrounding areas, and we strongly advise most of our clients to have these life-improving procedures performed on their pets. Our veterinarian will work with you to determine the appropriate timing for this procedure.

Spay and Neuter Benefits

Spaying or neutering prevents your pet from contributing to the already overwhelming population of unwanted animals. These procedures can also add years to the lives of companion animals. Spaying eliminates ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, and pyometra in female animals. It also significantly lowers the risk of breast tumors and cancer. Neutering a male dog or cat eliminates his risk of testicular cancer while lowering the risk of prostate problems. In addition, spaying and neutering lower the risk of diabetes and hormone-related disorders.

Some problematic behaviors are reduced or eliminated after a pet has been spayed or neutered, too. Aggression, roaming, howling, spraying, humping, and other troublesome behaviors may cease or become drastically reduced after having your pet spayed or neutered.
